Whatever happens with the negotiations - deal or no deal - the end of the Transition Period will impact public relations practitioners in different ways depending on where you work and who you work for. This is why I am so pleased to be able to offer this series of events which will address these differences and provide advice, information and ideas whichever sector you work in and whatever your role is. I want to thank all the Groups and the volunteers who have helped put this series together and look forward to seeing lots of you at these events.
